JoJo Accessories is run by me, Jo Foster. I studied Textile Design at Central Saint Martins were my passion for making things really started. After 10 years of different creative and design positions i decided to turn my hobby of making old union jack flags into bags and cushions into a business and transformed a outbuilding in my garden into a workshop with the help of my future husband to be and little spainel Ted!
The ethos of the company is to create handmade and good quality textile products, which are unique yet fun. Each item is made in the workshop in Essex.
I wanted the products to look old but could not get hold of antique union jack flags as they are so expensive now so i have come up with my own technique, to make them look vintage and i still use proper 100% cotton flags. My signature of JoJo Accessories is that each product is lined or backed with 100% cotton white and blue stripe ticking which complements the colours of the union jack yet is a practical and durable fabric.
Each item is handmade in my workshop using materials sourced from the UK and I do try to find recyled materials as well, like the vintage blue/red/white ribbon I use on the end of the zips.
